2005 Mustang cross mare
Vixen arrived for training in July 2018. This lovely 13-year old, 15hh bay mare is owned by All The Kings Horses Equine Rescue of Connecticut. Several years ago we helped to adopt out another ATHKER horse Jake, and we look forward to working together once again.
When Vixen arrived at the rescue last year, she was still with her mother and both were completely unhandled. Vixen had spent her entire life on the same property and had never had her feet done, been vaccinated, haltered or groomed, and had never even seen other horses or people until she arrived at ATHKER as a 13-year old. Initially, Vixen was extremely fearful and very possessive of her mother, but once they were separated Vixen turned into a completely different horse. The rescue's resident volunteer and trainer began working with her, and over the course of several months was able to get her halter trained and accustomed to some of the necessary basics like leading, lungeing, standing on cross ties, and getting her feet done. She has been saddled, but not yet ridden.
We look forward to continuing these great basics begun by All The Kings Horses. As we do with all of our horses, we will be starting from the beginning with Vixen to insure that she has a solid foundation before leaving our program. Once she is ready, Vixen will be available for adoption through All The Kings Horses.
